Well, the good news is that the Cubs scored a few runs in this one. The bad news is that they lost for the seventh straight game.

Tsuyoshi Wada was knocked around and then knocked out early. The Cubs got homers from Javier Baez and Arismendy Alcantara, which is certainly good to see, but didn’t get nearly enough offense to match the Pirates’ output against Wada and a once-again-ineffective Cubs bullpen.

Happy Friday!
